Malagari announces $280K grant to improve traffic flow

LANSDALE, July 7 – State Rep. Steve Malagari, D-Montgomery, today announced that Lansdale Borough received $280,000 to upgrade seven traffic signal controllers.

“This funding from PennDOT’s Green Light-Go Program will help Lansdale improve traffic flow throughout the borough, thereby relieving long wait times at several traffic lights,” Malagari said.

Lansdale was one of 50 municipalities throughout the state selected to receive a grant. More information and a complete list of grant recipients can be found online.

“I’ve heard from multiple Lansdale residents about heavy traffic and the need to reassess traffic signals, so I’m proud to help secure this funding,” Malagari said.

Green Light-Go grants reimburse municipalities for updates to improve traffic signal efficiency and operation. The grants can be used for projects such as installation of LED technology, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans, monitoring traffic signals, and upgrading signals to the latest technologies.
